It’s hard to imagine that a week-long yoga retreat could be life changing, but it’s happened at Anamaya time and time again…and continues to.
“Life-Changing Experience! Anamaya is my home away from home. Everything about the trip, from the room to the staff to the yoga teacher, to the AMAZING food, to the pool, to the treatments was absolutely mind blowing and worth every penny. I cannot wait until I return to this very special place!” – Amelia

Kim Goyette is a yogini, mother and lover of life. She began her yogic journey in 2006 when she was searching for balance while working in an extremely stressful position in corporate America. Her love of yoga grew as her personal practice provided a powerful way to rejuvenate her energy and nourish herself. Her positive experience motivated her to share these meaningful tools with others by becoming a yoga teacher.
Kim has her Masters in Exercise Science from Texas State University, has completed her 200-hour yoga certification and has studied and practiced meditation for the past ten years. She has been teaching corporate, private and public yoga classes and retreats for over seven years. Her passion for bringing life balance to the hectic worlds of her students, drove her to develop programs for the community that provide tools for overall well-being and self-care.
As an international teacher and student of yoga and co-owner of Meditation Mutha and Fitness 4 Mind & Body, Kim empowers her students to have wellness of mind, body and spirit. She believes everyone comes from a place of wholeness and encourages students to have acceptance, compassion and loving-kindness toward themselves and others. Kim supports an integrated experience by guiding asana from the foundation of breath incorporating practices of pranayama, mantra, mudra, meditation, and personal ritual.
Kim enjoys teaching Hatha, Hatha Flow and Yin yoga, where students have the opportunity to venture deeper into the mind-body connection. She provides individual adaptations for postures to ensure practicing yoga is accessible and safe for all whom she teaches. Kim believes students should walk away from a yoga class feeling nourished and rejuvenated. Her classes focus on the individual needs of each student, as she nurtures their development and personal growth.

Yogic Blindfold Dancing with Kim Goyette
In every culture from the beginning of time, our ancestors have used dance to connect with nature, connect with themselves and call on the support from energies around them to bring wisdom, prosperity, health and good fortune into their lives. Yogic trance dance enables us to connect with our primal life force and release things that block us from living the full expression of our lives. It’s an incredible way to draw prosperity, freedom and balance into our lives. Yogic dance is a tool that uses four elements to open up and access our inner vision. Through music, movement and rhythm, breath work and darkness we can tap into our divine wisdom and experience deep connection with ourselves. This workshop is 1.5 hours. Price is $35 (or $120 total for all three workshops).
